Content By: Herbert, C., Meixner, F., Wiebking, C., and Gilg, V. (2020). Regular Physical Activity, Short-Term Exercise, Mental Health, and Well-Being Among University Students: The results of an online and a laboratory study. Frontiers in Psychology, 11 (509), 1-23.

This course is for:  Psychologists, Counselors, and MFTs

Course Description: The health benefits stemming from regular physical activity and exercise are illustrated throughout the literature. Regular exercise has resulted in decreased vulnerability to psychological stressors, better cognitive performance, and improved mental health. Overall, researchers found that regular engagement in low- to moderate-intensity aerobic exercise for 6 weeks is effective for alleviating subclinical depressive symptoms and perceived stress among university students. Structured exercise interventions for university students remain sparse despite progress within the field of health management and the vast amount of available exercise options. There is an existent need to implement exercise interventions in universities for the promotion of short- and long-term mental health and well-being.

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the literature regarding physical activity and aerobic exercise among university students
  2. Consider the findings in relation to mental health, well-being, and regular physical activity
  3. Explore the potential health benefits of short-term online aerobic exercise interventions versus in-laboratory studies
